WHAT YOU WILL SEE
National Archaeological Museum
National Museum
Housed inside Fort Zoutman, the oldest building in Oranjestad

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
Fort Zoutman, built by the Dutch in 1798, was intended to provide defense against attacking enemies or pirates. Attached to the fort is the photogenic Willem III Tower, the tallest and best preserved part of the fort. Added in 1868, the tower functioned as a lighthouse, before it was retired in 1963. But the cannons outside the fort serve as a reminder of the structure's original defensive purpose.

SNACKS
Sample local culinary traditions such as "pastechi," fried dough pocket stuffed with meat and cheese and "pan bati," which is similar to flatbread. Adults 18 and over can enjoy a glass of beer.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
From the pier, you'll explore the downtown area of Oranjestad on foot. Admire 18th century colonial buildings (many painted in subtle pastel shades), monuments and statues, government buildings, and a number of historic sites.
